Adding weights to rating scale questions

Modified on Mon, Apr 3, 2023 at 11:11 AM

Do you have certain rating scale questions you think are more important than others? Primalogik gives you the ability to weight rating scale questions.

When creating a new questionnaire, use the checkbox option to select "Set different weights for each rating question." One limitation of this feature is that you MUST use a rating scale that does not include N/A as a response. The option to use this will feature will be disabled. N/A is given a value of 0 in our coding structure and thus would render all scores 0 when multiplying the weight.

Once you've added a rating question, you'll see a red box appear with it. Clicking any of the red question weight boxes below will open the exact same floating pop-up window where you will then be able to input your desired weights.

After clicking any of the red boxes like in the example above, the following dialogue box will appear. You may enter any percentages you wish as long as they add up to 100%.

Note: It is only possible to weigh individual questions within a section. It is not possible to weigh entire sections.
